I would try what the 2 people said first of all then if that does not fix the problem I would look for a blow fuse link wire which is a real ***** but with a simple light wire tester you can find the one blown if you have one burnt out. The fuselink wires should be situated near firewall by brake booster good luck

Battery, brakes and check engine light came on but the car will still run when driving with the problem lights on the car transmission would shut down but the engine still runs if you shut the car off it...


Year make and model ?
On some cars the brake warning light and battery warning light are on the same circuit. A problem with either system will turn both lights on. The check engine light means there are trouble codes in the computer that need to be retrieved to assist in troubleshooting the problem.

Dashboard light comes and goes


you possibly have a small short or even the driving lights sorry folder lights are drawing too much power from the system.For the power to come and go you either have a circuit breaker that is overheating putting the lights out and then cooling down and bringing them back on again or one short in the fog lights themselves.Regards

The switches should no be doing that at all.
The system has to get checked out. The body control module could be going out. There could be a short in the vehicle wiring harness some where.

Electrical Problem and now won't start


One common problem is with intrument cluster solder joints where the cable connector attaches to the circuit board. Solder joints fracture. Resolder. Use Hanes manual to get dashboard apart.

Indication is instrument panel goes dead and car sometimes will not start.

Other possibilites are loose connectors or poor connections in cable harnesses.
